    In general, which of the gases, N2, CO, and H2, would you expect to behave the most and least ideally?

    I have no idea how to determine this...can someone help me? Thank you!

    I owuld guess H2 because it is the smallest.

    H2, I agree. Small and light.

    Least: CO, polar
    Most: N2, apolar, stable (low rectivity)
    In between: H2, apolar, molecules could easily be influenced by the presence of others.
